Mike Marsh knows better than most about famous European comebacks at Anfield.
The Liverpool first-team coach played and scored the last time the Reds recovered from a two-goal deficit to progress in continental competition - against Auxerre in 1991.
That's the challenge now facing the current squad, who must reverse a 2-0 first leg defeat at Russian side Zenit St Petersburg in the return encounter on Thursday.
Inspiration for a remarkable turnaround is easy to come by for Marsh.
"I didn't start the first leg, I was on the bench for the game over in France," he told Liverpoolfc.com about the comeback 22 years ago.
"If I remember rightly, we came back with a 2-0 deficit but it could have been 4-0 or 5-0 because we got mullered over in France, to be fair.
"They played really well and we were expecting the worst when we came back. The crowd at Anfield was just over 23,000, half-capacity. They had seen the first leg and weren't expecting a great deal.
"I wasn't expecting to start. The manager pulled me and told me I'd be playing right-back, which was new to me because I'd never played there in my life. It was a new experience playing in that game in a different position, but it turned out well in the end.
"We started the game really well; we got a penalty early on and Jan Molby managed to score from the penalty spot.
"Luckily enough I scored just before the half-hour, coming in with a header at the far post to level the game. The fans just fed off the atmosphere, they could see something special was happening on the night.
"The players played their part, played at a really good tempo and got the fans behind us. They carried us through."
The former midfielder notched just six goals during his time at Anfield, but his strike altered the course of the Auxerre tie and ensured the match would go down in history.
He added: "We were attacking the Anfield Road end and for whatever reason - maybe because I wasn't used to playing at right-back - I found myself in an advanced position.
"The ball came across at the far post, I headed it back where it came from and I was off and running.
"Jan slid Mark Walters in at the Kop end late on, he managed to get there before the 'keeper and slid it in. That was us one up with not many minutes to go and through to the next round.
"It was fantastic. I would have liked to have been at Anfield for the great European nights of the past when it has been a full house and they have really gone from start to finish singing.
"But the 23,000 that were there that night got their money's worth and we as players really enjoyed it. It was a fantastic experience to go from 2-0 down, turn it round and win 3-0.
"It got us through to the next round and it shows you how tough it was because it's never happened before. We know what we're up against on Thursday night but if we go about it in the same way, I'm sure we won't be far away."
Although the Reds trail Zenit by two goals, the mood around Melwood has been one of optimism this week given the number of chances created at the Petrovsky Stadium.
Marsh echoed that viewpoint and insisted that the fans' support could be a crucial tipping point.
"It gives the home team a real impetus and it can be a factor in the away team's performance because they can be intimidated when there's that many fans behind the home team," he said.
"It gives you a bit of oxygen, a little bit more energy. They understand we've got to be patient in games but if we can get off to a good start and nick a goal early on, it puts the opposition under pressure.
"The more they're behind the team, the better it will be for them."
With the tie finely balanced before the second leg, there is a possibility of penalties on Thursday night.
The Reds have won all three of their penalty shoot-outs in Europe and, asked if the players have been practising, Marsh responded in confident manner.
He concluded:"We always practice them on a daily basis.
"People who are taking penalties are always out there doing extra bits after training so if we do go to penalties - which it possibly could - I'm sure we'll be well prepared. We're not missing many."
